How's it going with you guys? Slow progress is being made around these parts. I spent the entire weekend knocking my head against a wall but I think I may have something to show for it soon. I have the hardest time getting a pattern just right. I sometimes feel like I've fallen into something that I have no natural talent for whatsoever. Did I ever write about how the first time Tim saw me sewing he'd never seen me so angry (up to that point) and told me very gently that he didn't think sewing was for me. I'm pretty sure I have. He likes to remind me of that often :)
In other news, we have a new friend in the house. Here's Phoebe inspecting her red shoe. More on her later.
And guess what?! It's going to snow tonight. 6 inches. We Chicagoans are so darn lucky this year. A quick peek out the window shows that the car is already nicely coated in white and the tiny bit of yard that had thawed is now covered in snow again. I don't think I've seen the lawn in 2 months. And now that I'm back at the computer to finish up and we've already got a good 3 of those 6. I think I'm sufficiently, officially, resolutely over the 'winter wonderland' bit.
